Asian Cosmetic Procedures Q & A
What are Asian cosmetic procedures?
Asian cosmetic procedures are aesthetic surgeries that address the unique issues some people of Asian origin experience.
When performing Asian cosmetic procedures, Dr. Koch isn't trying to Westernize his patient's appearance, as that’s not the aim of these surgeries. Instead, he uses his skill and experience in refined techniques to make aesthetically pleasing adjustments without affecting his patients' ethnicity.
The issues most patients want to address primarily focus on the eyes and nose.
What types of Asian cosmetic procedures address the eyes?
Asian eyelids have no upper eyelid crease, which can be an issue for some patients. For instance, you might look tired all the time or have problems putting on makeup.
Asian eyelid surgery (Asian blepharoplasty or double eyelid surgery) creates a crease in your upper eyelid area that opens up the eyes, making them look bigger and giving you a fresher, wide-awake look.
Dr. Koch adapts his technique to achieve the results that are right for each patient, ensuring he preserves your natural appearance while enhancing the beauty of your eyes. Double eyelid surgery is the Asian cosmetic procedure Dr. Koch performs most often.
What types of Asian cosmetic procedures address the nose?
Patients of Asian origin often wish to undergo Asian rhinoplasty or nose reshaping to add length and definition to their nose, so it's more in proportion to their other features. It takes considerable skill to make the subtle adjustments required while retaining the natural, ethnically favorable aspects of your nose.
Asian rhinoplasty at Koch Facial Plastic Surgery can correct a variety of issues, including:
- Lengthening a nose that's too short
- Raising the bridge of a nose, so it's easier to wear glasses
- Defining the tip of the nose
- Narrowing wide nostrils
- Making nostrils look the same if one is a different size or shape
You can also undergo Asian rhinoplasty when you injure your nose.
It's important to select a surgeon like Dr. Koch, who has expert knowledge of Asian features, to ensure the reshaped nose doesn't affect your ethnicity. When Dr. Koch performs Asian rhinoplasty, he takes care to preserve your nose's function as well as enhance its appearance.
